The new Nintendo Switch Lite is mean to be a portable, personal device, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy it with others. While it lacks a kickstand (you'll need some extra accessories for that), the Switch Lite does allow you to pair your wireless controllers to it for enjoying multiplayer games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in tabletop mode.

Here's how to pair your Joy-Con or Nintendo Switch Pro Controller to your Nintendo Switch Lite. 

1. Open the Controllers menu from the Switch home screen.
